    […] It’s too hot to knit a sweater, and Ann Budd’s visit has us all fired up about socks. Plus, Darrin’s been dyeing up a storm of sock yarn, so we thought we’d have a Sock […]

      Hi Robin, to join the Sock Along you need to buy sock yarn.

    I’m from the Chicago area, South Holland, IL, I visited the studio in December 2016 and bought three skeins of the merino, do I need to purchase more to join the sock knit along? I need to use the yarn.

    I am very disappointed in LB. You sent out an email about a Sock a long and show pictures of beautiful yarn and then tell us that only people who live in the NYC area and can get to the studio can participate since you have to buy the yarn at the studio and the yarn is not available online. Not fair to get our hopes up and then dash them to the ground by telling us that we can’t buy the yarn online.

    It is increasingly disappointing that since the website was changed most of the previously engaging activities and offers no longer include those of us who are only able to come to the NYC shop occasionally! Wisconsin is unfortunately not next door. Special offers would be great for all of your customers. You could sell us the hand dyed yarn by choosing for us and having an online knit along. The promise of a better website materialized into one that seems to be excluding most of us. I so looked forward to the weekly newsletter that was inclusive and fun. It encouraged me to purchase your great products.

    I live in North Idaho, so needless to say I am very disappointed that this is not, online and only those who can afford to go to New York are the only ones who can participate. Why don’t you have online, skype classes, and we can buy the yarn online, so more can attend. I was so excited until I found out it was just for those that can afford an extremely expensive pair of sox. Andrea
